Anyone have seen any confirmation that Gold Coins can be used as a payment? If that’s the case, my subscription will paid itself next year 😂

So that’s one less reason to complain about the pricing.



I don't pay for things we're not supposed to, and I never will. That includes DLC and online.



As it is now, I wont ever pay for Nintendo's online service.

I figured that'd be the case once they said you pay with eShop funds, but confirmation is always good. That certainly eases the blow a bit.

Is it sold over the eshop? I can always pay with Gold Coins in the eshop, so if they not explicitly deactivate that for the subs or don't distribute through eshop, then it should work.

I'll probably pay for a month or two, just for smash. After I'm done with that, I won't touch it until it gets better

What do the payment options change? Every Gold Point spent for the subscription can't be spend instead to buy games cheaper.

The German word "Milchmädchenrechnung" comes to mind...



Still undecided. I am waiting to see what kind of price promotions will payed users get for digital games. If its on par to what we get on PS+ I will probably take the bait.
Other than that I do not care for multiplayer, and while the NES games are an added benefit, I know that It will mostly be a novelty for me and my drunken friends in general

For someone like me who spend alot more on physical than digital, that’s a nice perk to have.

I’ve looked at my “to buy list” for till September 2019, just the points I’ll receive from the games I intend to buy physical will cover 75% of the asked price for the subscription. I could spend that on eShop games, I know, but as of now my list for digital games is fairly limited.

So for buyers like me, having an option to uses those coins on something else than games is still a nice perk.
